This I Believe is an international project engaging people in writing and sharing essays describing the core values that guide their daily lives. More than 70,000 of these essays, written by people from all walks of life, are archived here on our website, heard on public radio, chronicled through our books, and featured in weekly podcasts. The project is based on the popular 1950s radio series of the same name hosted by Edward R. Murrow.

Pearl Sydenstricker Buck (1892-1973), winner of the Nobel Prize and the Pulitzer Prize and a 1914 graduate of Randolph-Macon Woman's College, was a woman far ahead of her time. She was a champion of civil rights, women's rights, children's rights, and the rights of those with disabilities long before these issues were talked about in public. Her long and tireless effort to increase understanding between Asia and America left a lasting imprint on the world.
